The Way You Handle External Content Sources: Negligence May Lead to Non-Compliance

In Industry, Exchanging External Information Is a Daily Occurrence – But Not Necessarily Legal

Your research department might need to know as much about a new electron source for determining materials as they do about non-destructive 3D imaging of chip structures. After all, it’s necessary information that flows into the work of corporate scientists. And into your teams.
Nevertheless, many falsely believe that they can simply exchange copyrighted content with their colleagues or store it on their intranet. After all, it’s all within the company walls. This unauthorised use – whether through ignorance or negligence – has already had unpleasant consequences for companies. It’s better that you let your colleagues know in advance what’s allowed and what isn’t.
